After reading the commentaries about top level domain servers
and their reality or mythical status, I went on a search of a
list of the present "." and top-level servers.
I know the list exists, I saw it years ago and someone quoted
such a list on this NANOG mailing list a day or two ago.
So, if someone would be kind enough to mail me a link to this
most essential of services, I would be grateful.
I appologize in advance for poluting the NANOG list with yet
more actual operational questions.
